A Religulous Cross

December 29, 2011 โ‹… by Ben Baller โ‹… 4 comments

before anyone says some dumb ass shit about being a satan worshiper or anything satanic related…. do some research. for the most part when it comes to religion, I’m pretty much neutral…. growing up christian not by choice but by family…. then half my family being jewish and my mother converted to buddism in the early 90’s…. I just believe that there is some sort of 1 god up there, BUT shit ain’t that deep to me. i’ve read the bible several times and it’s a good book. but the shit is fiction. period.
have any of you seen the movie religulous? GO SEE IT! great movie and thanks to my boy Mr Cartoon for putting me up on it.

NOW. back to the petrine cross or the upside down cross…. the origin of this symbol comes from the catholic tradition that St Peter was crucified upside down…. St. Peter requested to be crucified this way because he felt he was not worthy enough to be crucified in the same manner as Jesus died.

so anyways…. when my customer requested a sick cross to go with his nice cuban…. I said, fuck it, let’s go hardbody in every sense! we sure did…..

over 10 carats of VS diamonds and we set them everywhere possible except for the back of the cross…. we didn’t have a bail, we made a bail inside and going through the top part of the cross as shown in the pics below and we again flooded this bitch so deep that Noah would need his Ark for real.
enough with the words…. peep game







we made this in solid 14k yellow gold and man…. this joint is mean! and only a person who really knows who he is would rock something like this…. just off the few convo’s I’ve had with him over the phone, I knew right away, I liked dude….. this will stir up some shit on the internet, but again, only ignorant ones will make a fuss.

I think it looks sick! and the execution of course is top notch.
thanks for the biz and thanks for the open minded trust in us!

got something slick to say to me?

deal with that fist and his 40 cal (thats 1 of our 8 security guards)

now, since we’re on some religious type shit, we got a few other joints that were made after the xmas rush (but we’re still busy as hell) and of course they’re jesus pieces….
we just finished this and it’s already with his owner as we speak fresh off the fed ex truck…..


we made this Jesus piece in 14k yellow gold with white diamonds and this time we dipped it a darker yellow gold to match the owners new Rolex Day Date II president. it also weighs more than our usual pieces…..

and speaking of doing a jesus pieces different, we got a customer from detroit who ordered a baby jesus piece, but we made it slightly different, we did it in yellow gold and he wanted all yellow diamonds, except for on the thorns and eyes…. for that we used white diamonds and this combo came out sick!

we put white rhodium on the thorns to make the white pop out more and damn that shit looks really swag….

we got that kufi jesus coming very soon….. and I’m breaking it out for the new year!
stay tuned. stay fresh

I’m running late on my xmas blog, but I had to handle business first before I put up some lifestyle shit….. I will post the xmas and last weeks activities blog up tomorrow, I have the pics, it just takes time for me to write… this ain’t some tumblr bullshit

PEACE.


hold up, wait a minute….

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE WHO SENT ME GIFTS! TOO KIND! I REALLY DON’T WANT OR NEED ANYTHING AT THIS POINT IN LIFE, I GOT A BEAUTIFUL CRIB, FILLED WITH A WHOLE LOTTA EXPENSIVE SHIT! the cards and words and thoughts mean more to me at this point, real shit. unless you want to send me a gold GMT master II fully iced with the black sapphires and white baguette bezel ๐Ÿ™‚

GM CELEBRITY PROGRAM #CADILLAC

December 23, 2011 โ‹… by Ben Baller โ‹… 17 comments

I never ever will consider myself a celebrity. Kinda popular maybe, but until I see my face on the cover of a multi million in circulation publication or starring in a 100 + million dollar grossing film or at least 3 seasons on a hit TV show.

SO, with that said…. I have been asked to be apart of the Celebrity program for GM lol…. This is the most awesome hook up ever! it’s like a test drive that lasts months! all I pay for is my gas and if I get any parking citations… but otherwise HAVING A POPULAR BLOG AND A VERIFIED TWITTER ACCOUNT AND LOTS OF FOLLOWERS HAS IT’S PRIVILEGES!!!!!

so for right now… I had a choice between a 2012 CTS-V (556hp) stupid fast or a brand new 2012 Corvette Z06 (crazy dumb silly fast)….. I chose the CTS-V word to Justin Bieber
and for a week now, this shit is amazing! it’s faster than most anything on the streets and it’s really tight, doesn’t feel all soft like the normal cadillacs…. I’m really surprised, it has a tighter feel than a lexus even! really nice recaro suede and leather seats with like 16 point options! this is fully loaded…. like a $80k car. the nav is sick! the stereo slaps and this shit moves! the back seats are actually back seats, not like a 3 series or a C class……

I’m driving this to the Bay Area and will give you a full report when I come back home in a few days…. but I’m hyped on it!
so here are some pics that my boy Arnold took with his new iphone iPro lens….







THIS CAR IS GANG RELATED FOR REAL!

my next whip from this program is going to be the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid….

stay tuned for more.

THANK YOU HERMAN FROM DUB MAG! AARON FROM THE GM PROGRAM AND SANDRA FROM MIDWAY CAR RENTALS FOR DELIVERING THE CAR TO MY HOUSE PERSONALLY!
MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL!

everyone have a safe holiday
I will not be back until tuesday but my store is open every single day for extended hours and we’re even open on christmas day!

peace!
love!
